I built this during Jeff Lohr’s latest course, Veneer & Cabinetwork 301. All the walnut pieces are solid wood, all of the cherry parts are veneered. Finished off with 2 coats of Boiled Linseed Oil, then 4 coats of Waterlox.

That is some excellent veneering work and a beautiful cabinet. What method did you use to apply the waterlox finish? I’ve been wiping mine on with a rag, but I’ve been wondering about brushes/spraying.

I always use a rag. My general rule is unless it’s paint, leave the brush alone. I tried Waterlox high gloss finish on the case back, as that veneer is unbelievable (the pics don’t do it justice). Waterlox said only use a brush. I did, and it bubbled. Took forever leveling that, and then I had to knock down the gloss so the remains of the bubbling didn’t show. I relearned my lesson… I only apply finish with rags!

Wow. Where did you get veneer like that? I don’t think I’ve seen cherry like that before.

The veneer is from Jeff’s private stock. It really is a shame that I don’t get a lot of natural light where that cabinet is hung, the grain of the back panel is amazing (I’m not trying to pat myself on the back, I messed up the back panel several times, mother nature did the hard work).

Wow, that thing is beautiful. I need to make a new deluxe saw till, and your fine piece has given me some ideas. Adding to my favorites.
